Bagpipe making instructions necktie - adapted from a set of 1908 DIY bagpipe making plans. The 11th day of Christmas, we get pipers piping - don't ever malign a piper, a set of pipes, or this tie! No pipes in hand? Be the life of your holiday party without having to make a sound.

This is a large design printed high up on the tie so it will show from beneath a jacket or vest, reaching ~18 inches (45 cm) up from the bottom point.

A bagpipe primer: A standard set of Highland Pipes combines four vibrating, noise-making reeds - three of these are "drones," meaning they produce a single note, unchanged by the player. The final pipe is the "chanter," where the piper blows air in the end, and covers holes along the length of it with his or her fingers producing the melody. The bag portion is traditionally made from goat-skin, though now usually made of some boring, synthetic tech fabric instead.
